My favorite revolver...

This little beauty is the best of my collection. Eight shot .357 magnum TRR8.

That's a red dot on a quick-release mount. I also have a scope for hunting. I have the stainless version of the revolver with open sights. I figured I would throw a little bling at this one.

I like it! I like the speed of a red dot also. What mount are you using for the red dot?

This my favorite smith and wesson revolver, a model 10-5 3" with crimson trace LG-105 grips. Very simple but very reliable.

One of the coolest revolvers today. I know, because I have the younger brother, the R8.

Great balance (5" barrel), great trigger, high (highest) cap ".357" revolver, you can mount St. Helen on it. What else do you need, polygonal rifling?

And all that for just over $1000 new. I just bought it so I could say I bought a revolver for $1100.

Crimson Trace grips are next.

I looked at the Streamline light with laser two days ago. The price at my local gun store went stupid! $498.00 is what they wanted.

Iron Man,

In your pic, how are you getting all that detail on a black gun with a white back ground?

How are you getting a featureless white back ground?

Are you a professional photographer, or can I get pics like that too?

Nice. Busy but nice.

Holster...
Kydex? Leather? with all the geegaws or without?
Waist or shoulder/chest (think tanker holster)?

Really want to see the entire ensemble when you put it together and get your take on the best way to carry the beastie.

Takes the K.I.S.S. theory and throws it out with the laundry/bath water eh?

Still and all, formidable revolver you have there.

The TRR8 shoots really well. It's very, very accurate and the front sight can be changed out.
